Red Dust Road
Red Dust Road
By the second listen I was already singing along. Similarly ‘My Place (Summer Storm)’ had me hooked early on with its catchy chorus, cleverly arranged harmonies and a simply brilliant guitar solo in the mix too. ‘Not Like Before’ shows a softer, more emotionally involved side to the band. The inclusion of the smooth guitar solo and steady drum beat gives the song a similar feel to the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ classic song ‘Scar Tissue’.
Title track ‘Unfinished Story’ is an up-tempo, but reflective song that I imagine is even more emotional when performed acoustically. Singer Matt Reynolds’ voice shines particularly on this song, as he manages to strike a careful balance between singing personal lyrics and delivering powerful vocals. To me this six track EP was made for long drives, road trips and summer evenings. As a first output for the band, it’s undeniably strong. With ‘Unfinished Story’ they manage to showcase a range of material, find influence from other bands and still prove that they have their own unique sound.
It is a delicate balance that they make seem effortless. Amidst the hundreds of pop rock bands touring the country at the moment, Red Dust Road sound wonderfully authentic and give the impression that they have been perfecting their sound for several years, not several months. I, for one, am impressed and will definitely be tracking down tickets to see them live on their current tour’ – LiveMusicScene ‘Serious pliers of adult rock’ – Venue Magazine Read more on Last.fm.
